Good Evening Jariamitchell,

I'm not really clear as to the question you are asking, but I will attempt to answer what I think you might be looking for. There are a few sites that you can google that will give you reviews on both schools, one is From what I have read, Durfee K-5 is rated 1 out of 10, there are a number is problems, discipline, administrative problems and very poor academics.

The reviews for Martin L King Educational Center are very positive and their rating is a 6 out of 10. As a parent myself doing research is extremely important and I think after you do yours, you will not have a question what school your daughter should attend.

I hope this helps :-)

Hi Brooke,

Unfortunately, as a Realtor we are not allowed to discuss areas as it's considered "steering".

Good Luck,

Hi Na:

The first step is to contact a mortgage lender and get pre-approved for a mortgage.

I'm not sure there is a list of new homes being built. I would suggest you work with a realtor that can assist you with your search for a home. The agent would be able to pull new listings on the MLS for you.

Good luck

Hello Andreas

I can assist you and need additional information about what you are looking for. What specific area in Detroit are you interested in? Do you know the area well? What size building will you be looking at? Are you planning on buying cash or mortgage? Do you have a mortgage lender you are working with? What price range do you have in mind? Are you a company buyer or an individual?

What is the time frame you are working with?

Let me know your expectations and specifications so we can get an agent to contact you.

The home on Gray was foreclosed on in October 2010. The redemption period just ended. The home is not currently on the market but won't be available to rent since it's a foreclosure.

If you need assistance finding a property to rent I'd be glad to help.

Thank You,

I have had clients stay at the Inn on Ferry Street. Don't know the price, but it was a charming place. It was one of about 4 old homes with rooms available that were built in the late 1880's for executives of Michigan's then thriving Carriage Industry. Before we built cars, the state was know for its horse drawn Carriages.!!

Reggie Fluker, MBA answered:
Hi Kotl,

The terms "Good / safe" depends on the observers criterium or definition. I would suggest that you establish a buyer-client (under contract and retainer) relationship with an experienced REALTOR who knows the Detroit community well. As the REALTOR's client, he or she would have a legal obligation to share with you whatever he or she knows about a property's condition, or environmental issues that may affect value. I have actively worked Detroit, and it's immediate suburbs, as a REALTOR and single-/multi-family investor for over 28 years, am a former Detroit police officer, have also worked for the City in a different capacity to redevelop its public housing communities, and have worked with others in the City's political and nonprofit communities.

I guess you might say: "I KNOW the metro Detroit area!" Please feel free to call me, if you would like me to work with you.

Hi Paul,

What does good mean? Are you looking for the best schools? Check

Good is very subjective and I think most of the Realtors here will not be able to answer that for you. Your budget as a buyer is really a key factor.

If you want to live in some of Metro Detroit's priciest communities (which I am not saying are the "good" ones, then you are likely looking at places like Birmingham, Bloomfield Hills, Franklin, Northville, Grosse Pointe Shores and a few others.

What are things that are important to you? Being close to work or schools? Living in a smaller community? Proximity to the airport? All factors that would help us to tell you what communities you might prefer.

Dan Chase answered:
Talk to your cities housing authority. You should be able to find it by asking at city hall for it. Calling the state dept of human services and asking for it. By contacting your state or federal representative and asking for it. You would be seeking section 8 housing.

Look under government (state, federal, local) in the phone book. You should be able to find some help after a few calls.

Good luck.

John Shellington answered:
Foreigners can get home loans in the U.S. but it's difficult. It depends on their residency status. If they've got a green card they're home free on both FNMA and FHA. Otherwise they will need to have either an H1 or L1 visa (3 yr renewable). Even with the right visa or green card you still have some potential problems. You have to put together a documented loan package i.e. 2 year employment and income history, verifiable assets, and acceptable credit scores. Credit scores can be the most diffficult to establish since very few countries have a credit scoring system using Experian, Equifax, and Transunion. I believe England, Australia, and Canada may have one out of three bureaus. If they've been in the U.S. awhile and/or have some international credit cards, you might be in luck. The visas get you in the door but the loan documentation may be a problem. I hope this info helps. ... more
